Describing acupuncture: A new challenge for technical communicators
Acupuncture is increasingly popular as an alternative medical therapy. Its description presents a challenge for technical communicators. Traditional Chinese medical explanations of acupuncture are unscientific, and scientific explanations of acupuncture are inconclusive. Technical communicators must translate acupuncture theory (traditional and scientific) for not only lay-people, but also for both traditional Chinese and Western health practitioners. Further research is needed.
